John McPhail of Anna and the Apocalypse will direct the project, which will be written by S.J. Inwards.

“Details of the plot are being kept in a castle keep, but the story is said to center on a teenage girl who grapples with her own morality as she contends with the dreadful consequences of her ambition. It takes its cues from Lady Macbeth, one of literature’s most prominent characters and a key figure in William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the tale of a Scottish general who murders his way into kingship while descending into madness from guilt and belief in a prophecy told by witches. Lady Macbeth is his wife, a calculating woman who prods her husband into murder and war,” THR reports.

Johnny Depp apparently had this nickname for Channing Tatum
